Oral Tracey | Windies playing with our hearts

first_imgWithout even realising it, by these performances, the Windies team is tugging at the strings of the hearts and emotions of long-suffering and desperate Caribbean cricket fans, with an imperious win in the first Test match in Barbados, followed by another clinical display in the second Test in Antigua against the No.-3 ranked England. They are tempting us into believing again. Coming into this series, expectations amongst fans and experts were measured. Indeed, many feared the worst, especially after the Caribbean team got mauled in successive Test series on the subcontinent by India and then Bangladesh in their last two assignments. Even after that near-perfect performance at the Kensington Oval, there were still lingering fears of a rapid return to business as usual going into the second Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, but apparently, things are getting serious with this Windies team. There seems to be something happening. Jason Holder and his charges found a long-lost gear of consistency to tighten their stranglehold on the bewildered Englishmen and on the series. SWEET MEMORIES The fast-bowling quartet of Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, captain Jason Holder and Alzarri Joseph have brought back sweet memories of the Windies of old, while the batsmen continue to expertly share the responsibility with the entire top and middle order, having contributed timely and vital innings across both Test matches. The completeness of these two performances has forced many cynics and sceptics into silent submission. Many of us had literally lost all hope of a Windies revival in Test cricket. There are just too many debilitating circumstances pulling away at the longest format of the game. In approximately seven days of Test match cricket, characterised by gutsy, old-fashioned, cerebral play, West Indian cricket fans have found their voices again. Windies Test cricket has snapped out of the coma. The flames of hope and optimism have been rapidly rekindled. The sights and sounds of opposing batsmen flinching, fending off, and ultimately surrendering in despair and ultimate defeat, in tandem with batsmen applying themselves, settling down, concentrating, and converting solid efforts into match and series-winning performances, were a joy to behold. Believe it or not, the doubts are beginning to wane, and the fears beginning to subside. The players are beginning to appear as stars and heroes again. If this mini wave of success continues, the fans will return to the stands in droves. West Indians will feel proud of our cricket team again, and all the misery and heartache of the last 25 years will be quickly forgiven and forgotten. It is scary. Such has been the influence of West Indies cricket on the psyche of the Caribbean people, especially for those who remember what and who we were. It’s time again to risk it all and invest our energy and our hearts and emotions in the fortunes of the Windies team, not just because we are putting the proverbial whip on our former colonial masters, but because, having waited so long, this time seems different, and it’s a chance we are consciously willing to take. The roads of faith and belief are pathways to the city of love. Even after all these years, there is still something special about a Windies Test match win and a Test series triumph. They render the mission more complete and the achievement more comprehensive. We hope the dream continues and we are never awakened by our worst fears. We beg and beseech the Windies team, let it be real, and stop playing with our hearts.last_img read more

first_imgAfter Georgia State’s thrilling upset win over Baylor in the second round of the NCAA Tournament literally knocked him out of his chair, Panthers coach Ron Hunter pumped his team up for the next round with a postgame speech.He talked about in spite of all they’ve been through together, they’re only one win from making it to the Sweet Sixteen.
